Google Chrome gets a new logo


Google Chrome is getting a new logo, and while it looks a lot like the old logo at first glance, its designer has offered a behind-the-scenes look at some of its subtle changes.

The new logo shipped on February 4 with a new version of chrome canaryan experimental version of the browser primarily aimed at developers, says Google designer Elvin Hu.

It can be difficult to spot the differences between these logos, even in Hu’s side-by-side comparison. Thankfully, the designer explained what Google changed and why in a series of follow-up tweets.

Google has also customized the icon for different platforms (Windows, macOS, Chrome OS, etc.). “We want the icons to be recognizable in Chrome,” Hu says, “but also well-designed for each operating system.”
